Hi, my name is Farah. I am from Damascus in Syria. My age is 14. My family came here because there is war in Syria. Our house was destroyed by bombs and we have even seen bombs falling. My dad's cousin was killed by a bomb. From Syria we first went to Lebanon and from there to Turkey. By bus we drove 16 hours to Istanbul. An airplane brought us from there to Germany.
I am living in Germany now since 1 1/2 years and I like it here, but I miss our house in Syria. I like that I do not have to wear a uniform in school. I do not want to go back to Syria, because there are no more friends there. They all fled. My dream is to become a psychologist.
